Nativity Felt Board Scene

There are lots of printable nativity scenes on the internet, but I think the one at Activity Village is the best!  The peoples faces are so sweet, and I love the colors.   We haven't used our felt board in a while, but I brought it out for this advent activity. 

I printed the nativity characters onto cardstock and glued a small piece of sandpaper to the back of each one.  I was pleasantly surprised by how well they stick to the felt board. 

Here's a close-up of a wiseman since BOTH of our girls are going to be wisemen at church next Sunday!

Take a minute to browse the Activity Village website...there is A LOT of good stuff there!


  1. I have a Nativity Ideas linky on my blog and would love for you to stop by and link up this post!

  2. Do you know of any way to print on to felt? Or could you have glued these to felt as easily as the sandpaper?

  3. I love the sandpaper idea. I have never heard of using it with flannel boards. Great idea!

  4. We did this with magnets and dollar stickers
    Love your set. Going off to print one for our felt board (I love nativities and can't have enough of them!)

  5. Thanks for the link - I have been looking for a nativity set for our flannel board - this is perfect!

    For Michelle - I have printed on t-shirt transfer paper and then ironed it onto white felt.

  6. Michelle- I think the cardstock would be too heavy for the felt to hold the figures to the board. However, I love the idea of printing on transfer paper and ironing onto's on my to-do list!

  7. Great idea! Now Christmas is over but I will probably print something else... Allt gott från Sofie
